anxiety about a diet

What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn't much better than tedious disease.  ~George Dennison Prentice, Prenticeana, 1860

The goal in any weight loss program is that the client (you) become comfortable with their eating patterns and that food is not a constant thought. You are  satisfied with only the amount of food that your body needs in order to live a long, healthy life.   When food no longer is a substitute for fulfilling emotional needs, comfort and a way to deal with stress you will find that your eating habits have improved, you enjoy the food you do eat and you are conscious of the choices you make.   Although mindless eating patterns must be changed in order for weight loss to occur...that doesn't mean you stop thinking about the food you are you focus as you eat in the moment, savour the wonderful taste, flavors, sense the textures and enjoy each bite.
